BRAND AWARENESS: A N.Y. TIMES editorial noted NCAA President Myles Brand, in response to the committee, “reaffirmed his commitment to holding athletic programs to higher standards.” But an NCAA task force report on the future of major college sports released last week “touches on some of the same issues cited in the blistering letter from Congress.” The NCAA report “calls on college presidents and administrators to rein in the campus sports machines and dial back spending.

If that doesn’t change, the NCAA can expect more scrutiny from Congress” (N.Y. TIMES, 11/6).
